This August, the Museum will be offering a one-week long “Fishers Island Nature Discovery” program for children. FIND will be led by experienced nature educators who will share their knowledge and love of natural history with our youngest generation.
WEEK 1: August 12th-16th, 2019 (Mon-Fri)
TIME: 9 a.m. to 12 noon
LOCATION: The Henry L. Ferguson Museum
Museum Children’s Program
The program leaders include educators from the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center, Mystic, Conn., Murray Fisher, founder of the Harbor School and the Billion Oyster Project in New York City, and Emily Bodell, a Museum staff member who is the coordinator of the Fishers Island Seagrass Coalition. Each program will be split into two age groups: ages 5 to 7 and 8 to 10. You can register your child or children for one or two weeks (no registration by the day).
The cost per Participant is $300 for the week to cover the expense of staff and materials.
This is a wonderful opportunity for young children to develop a love of nature and ecology through participatory learning both at the Museum and in the field. We hope that you will consider signing your child or children up. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Museum. You can call or e-mail the Museum to reserve a spot in the session. The registration form has sign-up information, costs, and logistics. (The registration form and payment will have to be received within one week of the initial contact to hold the spot.)REGISTRATION FORM
